Pale Moon|| Platform: PC || Version: 25.2.1
Interface language: Russian, etc.|| Tablet: Not required|| Year: 2015

This version of Pale Moon is optimized specifically for use on Intel Atom processors and is compatible with Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 operating systems. Pale Moon is a web browser based on the popular Mozilla Firefox browser. Pale Moon is fast and stable. Therefore, if you have experience using the Firefox browser, you will not experience difficulties when using it. Optimization of the source code only for the necessary functions and compilation for a specific processor family made it possible to obtain high stability and provide higher speed on Atom processors in Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 (compared to the regular version).--


Windows 32bit: XP SP3/Vista/ 7/ 8/ Server 2003 and higher
CPU: Intel Atom and others with SSE2 support
256MB of RAM
150MB minimum free hard disk space


As the Pale Moon developers emphasize, it is not worth considering it an optimized version of the Firefox (FF) browser. As if to confirm their words, they made a number of changes to version 25, emphasizing the difference between their brainchild and FF:
- changed GUID (Globally Unique Identifier);
- by default, compatibility mode with Firefox is disabled, i.e.
the line "Firefox/xx.xx" is not used in the passed parameter "User Agent" (showing the engine name and browser version).; ;
- in the version of the Pale Moon application, the identifier "Firefox Compatibility" is disabled, for the possibility of installing extensions like "Firefox 24.*" according to the displayed version of Pale Moon;
- updated brand images for the official/unofficial logo and part of the about: pages;
- updated blank page - placed the browser logo.
Some features of the build for iAtom and Windows XP
Extra optimization for processors of the iAtom family (according to the developers).
Reduces power consumption.
In all other aspects, it is exactly the same regular version of Palemoon as for desktops, only built on a slightly different code
Runs under later operations. Windows systems and other processors with one but: it works somewhat slower than on Atom.
On other weak processors and low-power machines, it works quite smartly, especially when using Windows XP
Only the 32-bit version is available
"Don't even ask to make a 64-bit version, because it's simply impossible," the developers write.
The Web Developer tools are excluded to reduce the resources used.
Features of Pale Moon version 25 (Atom_WindowsXP build):
Optimized for modern processors
The familiar, efficient, fully customizable interface (not Firefox's Australis!)
is based on the Firefox ESR sources of the previous version
Increased stability - even fewer cases of browser crashes
High speed of page rendering and script processing
Large-scale and extensible HTML5 and CSS3 support
VP9 and Opus codec support
Supports many extensions and themes of the Firefox browser
New: Support for exclusive extensions and themes for Pale Moon
Many options for personalization and configuration
Improved the bookmark system from the bookmarks menu and the Drag&Drop function
It does not support tab grouping (also called Panorama) in order to increase the efficiency of the interface. (But there is an official utility that returns this function.)
The official portable version
Portable version: You can run multiple copies from multiple folders at the same time (unlike FF).
The official utility for copying a profile
Multiple language localizations


For Russification, a localization file ru is required.xpi, which is part of the distribution.
Install the file in the browser
Method 1. A file named "ru.xpi" just drag and drop into the program window.
In the window that opens, click on Install Now.
Method 2. In the browser itself, click on the blue "Pale Moon" button, find the New Tab - OpenFile item in the menu, select it with a single click of the LMB, in the window that opens, select the ru.xpi file from the distribution through the Explorer. In the window that opens, click on Install Now.
Activation of the Russian language
In the browser, enter the expression "about:config" in the address bar, press Enter on the keyboard. Then enter (in the line "Search"): t.locale.
Double-click on the "general.useragent.locale" parameter that appears, enter "ru-RU" instead of "en-US"
and restart the browser.


Changes in version 25, innovative:
- implementation of "distinctive" (from FF) changes;
- by default, there is no synchronization of add-ons;
- the system of double identification of extensions by GUID is allowed, i.e. extensions that have an identifier for both Pale Moo and FF, first of all, will be recognized as extensions for Pale Moon;
- Data compression has been implemented for the cache on the hard disk, which should give better efficiency of its use, and speed up the loading of pages stored in the cache;
- work with WindowsXP is prohibited (the exception is a special version for the Atom/Windows XP bundle);
- user data synchronization has been transferred to a new server (do not forget to re-create an account in the new version!). Recent changes (25.2.x):

How do I install Firefox extensions that for some reason are not installed (or are not being searched for)?
- enable compatibility mode with Firefox:
Settings menu, Advanced tab, the lowest checkbox "Compatibility with Firefox", check the box;
- find the desired extension on the Firefox add-ons Website, download, then go to the Add-ons/Extensions section in the browser, click on the "gear" (to the left of the search bar), select Install.. from the file, through the File Explorer, specify the file, click Open;
- or find the necessary extension on its developer's website, download the version for Firefox or Pale Moon, install manually as described above.
How do I transfer a Firefox profile to the portable version of Pale Moon?
